The 6th Workshop on Online Abuse and Harms (2022)


The goal of The Workshop on Online Abuse and Harms (WOAH) is to advance research that develops, interrogates and applies computational methods for detecting, classifying and modelling online abuse. You can see the Proceedings of WOAH 4 (2020) and WOAH 5 (2021). Please read, discuss and use!

WOAH 6 will be held on July 14th with NAACL. We look forward to seeing you there! šŸ„³


For this sixth edition of the Workshop on Online Abuse and Harms (6th WOAH!) we advance research in online abuse through our theme: On Developing Resources and Technologies for low resource Online Abuse and Harms . We continue to emphasize the need for inter-, cross- and anti- disciplinary work on online abuse and harms, and invite paper submissions from a range of fields. These include but are not limited to: NLP, machine learning, computational social sciences, law, politics, psychology, network analysis, sociology and cultural studies. Continuing the tradition started in WOAH 4, we invite civil society, in particular individuals and organisations working with women and marginalised communities who are often disproportionately affected by online abuse, to submit reports, case studies, findings, data, and to record their lived experiences. We hope that through these engagements WOAH can directly address the issues faced by those on the front-lines of tackling online abuse.
